for Baldurâ€™s Gate II
â€˜Whereâ€™s my old gang done gone?â€™
I heard a sad man say,
I whispered in that sad manâ€™s ear,
â€˜Your gangâ€™s done gone away.â€™
â€”Kurt Vonnegut, Catâ€™s Cradle
â€œThe past is the present, isnâ€™t it? Itâ€™s the future too.â€
â€”Eugene Oâ€™Neil, Long Dayâ€™s Journey Into Night
Angelo Dosan is the fighter-turned-mage who served as your brotherâ€™s henchman in Baldurâ€™s Gate. You may remember that he sentenced you to death and fought against you in the Undercity, and if you were lucky enough to mine the content, you may remember that he is Shar-Teelâ€™s father. Most likely he didnâ€™t survive your game, but people in this world seem to have a knack for not staying dead.
In the Angelo NPC Mod, Angelo tracks you down in the Graveyard District to make you an offer you canâ€™t refuse (though perhaps you will). He comes equipped with the following:
-Between two and five banters with every Bioware NPC*
-Extensive player-initiated conversation trees
-A full array of interjections
-For those curious about the past, the player can ask Angelo to unfold the story of Sarevok as he saw it. Of course, should Sarevok himself ever join the party, the plot may thicken.
-Angelo has two major questsâ€”both in SoA, one of which can carry into ToB.
-If you are female, are of any race and have at least twelve charisma, you can attempt to romance Angelo. Itâ€™s a rocky road, but may reward players looking for something different.
* Except for Cernd (none) and Mazzy (one)
Angelo is Chaotic Neutral. He feels little remorse for the past, but has no objection to giving virtue a try; and in everything looks out for himself. As his new â€œchief,â€ he wants to see the PC succeed (as long as the PC doesnâ€™t set his sights too high, as Sarevok did), and canâ€™t understand why the PC insists on running around with a gang of oddballs after risky objectives, rather than settling down and building his or her fortune. He has little to no taste for adventure, and respects experience and competence.
â€œI give you my word. You can always trust a rogueâ€™s word; itâ€™s all he has. I didnâ€™t betray your brother, even once I realized he was the craziest bastard I had ever met and would most likely kill me one day. Why? I was afraid of him. And you, from the looks of it, are a harder fellow than he was.â€
â€œGods, man. Dragons? Joust away. Mad ghosts? Iâ€™m right behind you. Bureaucracy? We can find you another childhood pal.â€
Age: 50 (49 in BG1)
Height: 5' 10"
Hair Color: Black (going on "skunk")
Eye Color: Brown
Long Sword: 1
Single-Weapon Fighting: 2
You remember Angelo smiling as he condemned you to death, and later looking less than enthusiastic as he stood by your brother Sarevok in the Undercity. When asked about himself, he simply answers "you know what you know," but you get the feeling he might say more if pressed.
